Top Students of GIA for S.Y 2020-2021

Many parents want to enroll their children into private schools, despite the higher cost. Their ultimate dream is to provide their children with quality education. School curriculum in private schools promote the overall development of the students, by incorporating different extra-curricular activities, inter-school competitions, and social skills. It also promotes productive student-teacher interactions and benchmarks the expected learning outcomes for every class and subject. Private schools also promote quality education by hiring highly qualified teachers, and always ensure a standard student-teacher ratio. Therefore, students really excel in academics, because of the excellent quality education that they provide. Georgia International Academy is one the private schools here in the Philippines which offers quality education. They also have students who excel in academics.
